With more than 150 years’ history, H&W is a Belfast land mark of standing. Its recent history saw a formidable decline in employee numbers. By 2005, only 90 people were employed there on ship repair and other projects. Today, H&W is a successfully reinvented marine engineering firm designing, manufacturing, fabricating, assembling and project managing large scale, multi-million dollar projects in the offshore renewables, gas and oil sectors, ship conversion and repair and other marine related contracts. JComms provides PR and political communications support to H&W particularly at times of intensified media interest such as during the arrival of large rigs, the recruitment of contractors etc.
